Green River FC wins!

After an exciting game against the Legion of Bananas, we came out victorious.

It was a back-and-forth game:  GRCFC took the early lead 3 – 1 but the Legion of Bananas came back to tie the game late in the 2nd half.  Then we scored the winning goal with 2 minutes left in the game.  What a way to finish!

The Final was 5 – 4.  Saimon Woldu (#11) scored 3 goals, including the winner, for a hat trick!  The other 2 goals were scored by Bonus Inkhaw (#21) and Kazu Akata (#8).  The win was a total team effort, with everyone working hard to improve from the first week.  Our defense stayed committed and did a great job stopping the ball and protecting their goal.

Our match was selected as “Match of the Week” for the Starfire Outdoor 8v8 league, so there will be a video posted to their website in the near future.  Once it is posted, we will feature it on the blog.  As the winning team, we had a Man of the Match…Saimon!  You’ll get to see his interview soon.
